Until a couple years ago, I’d never heard of these things. Haskap, or Blue Honeysuckle, became available through seed catalogs in the last couple years, and I figured I’d give them a go. I believe I have a Polar Jewel, and one other kind. They apparently are super-hardy, even the blossoms hardy well into freezing temperatures, and they clearly produce fruit in June – ahead of most other ‘blue fruit’. This is my first fruit, having planted them last spring.
These things are awesome – akin to a intensely flavored blueberry with a tart finish. I am a fan. I wish I had more. Lots more. Who knew?
